1)              Directs Corporation Counsel to begin the process of drafting an inclusionary zoning ordinance for The City; and

2)              Requests that counsel collaborate with the Affordable Rent and Housing Task Force, Office of Strategic Planning, and members of Buffalo’s developer community in the drafting of the aforementioned ordinance.
